Direct payments for childrenDirect payments for disabled children, young people and their families.
Do you want more choice, flexibility or control?
A Direct Payment can help you manage the care you receive and make the most of the services available to you or your child.
A Direct Payment is money we give to you to enable you to arrange care and support for your disabled child or young person instead of us providing the service.
If you are already receiving services from us contact your social worker or community care worker to discuss Direct Payments further.
If you are not receiving a service from us and you believe your child or you may be eligible for support contact Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190 and ask for an assessment of need.
For more information see the leaflet or handbook in the related documents or visit our direct payments section.
You can also find copies of recent bulletins, newsletters and sample documentation in our direct payments information and downloads section.
